's on-going reporting "making sense of financial news." >> that's steve and barrie boehne, they're the leading force in tandem. look at the grace. >> reporter: now what, you may ask, could a surfing star of the 1970s have to do with economics in 2013? >> isn't that great! >> reporter: well, steve boehne's life in the surf, which began at age 12 here in dana point, california, has involved shredding the waves, since 1958, on boards of his own invention. he's the founder and still maker and seller of legendary high end infinity surfboards. >> paul, you can use my board any time. >> reporter: even if his heavy lifting days are over. isn't this kind of a large surfboard? >> yeah, this is bigger than normal. it's a standup surfboard. it's become popular in the last five years. and a lot of the older guys really embraced it at first, because it's a little bit easier because you're already standing up. >> reporter: but these days, boehne's got a bigger problem than gnarly knees. >> 95% of the boards being sold in the world weren't made by us in california who started the surfboard indu
and to steve's point, let's be clear, the reason israelis end up expecting american presidents to quote/unquote love them is because barack obama's two immediate predecessors did precisely that! bill clinton was in love with the idea of israel. he wrote in his memoirs about rabin "i loved rabin as i've love nod other man." and george w. bush, with all the frustrations wh ariel sharon was enamored with him as well. so obama inherited a high bar and, frankly, didn't make his own situation any better. he is not an emoter in chief. he has a tough time connecting so that's point number one, number two, this is a down payment trip. this is not a trip to reassure netanyahu on the palestinian issue or on iran because i don't think there's a way, frankly, to reassure anybody on either of these issues because we don't have an answer to either of them and neither do the israelis. >> rose: so therefore what can netanyahu do for the president? >> it's a really good question? i would argue on the iranian issue the prime minister has to give the president the time and space that he needs -- not to cro
to steve schmidt o sa theres a rift between the evangelical base and libertarians, and rand paul, in some ways, is a schizophrenic candidate representing that. >> this week marks the 10th anniversary of the american invasion of iraq that following the 9/11 attacks. a cnn poll says 56% of americans believe it was a mistake. one quarter of them think it is a victory. the bush administration told us we had to get there to get the weapons of mass destruction. president bush said the new regime in iraq would serve as a dramatic and inspiring example of freedom. how did it play out, nina totenberg? >> it played out horribly. when you read the postmortems, a lot of people from iraq and here and policy wonks, many who were supportive of the effort, have come to regret it, and part of the reason is we have changed the balance in the middle east. we had a saddam hussein who was a check on iran. he is gone. there were no weapons of mass destruction and the country is in shambles. >> i have read comments from those who fought there that thought they were engaged in a noble effort, colby king. >> of c
a few of an all-time high. steve leaseman tells us where we go from here. >> the federal reserve voting 11 to 1 to keep its policy in place and purchasing $85 billion a month in treasury and mortgage-backed securities in an effort to drive down long-term interest rates. but the federal reserve chairman in the press conference after the statement came out, suggested that the fed may reduce the amount of monthly purchases if he sees sustained improvement. >> we are seeing improvement. i think one thing we would need is to make sure that this is not a temporary improvement. so we've seen periods before where we had as many as 300,000 jobs for a couple of months and then things weeken again. i think an important criterion would be sustained for a number of months. >> significantly, theeder reserve did reduce its outlook for unemployment in the united states. the fed saying that it sees unemployment falling to 6.85% is in in 2014. that's the first time since the fed has been forecasting and making those public that it's been below 7%, a quicker pace of improvement in the unemployment rate co
person. steve trachtenberg is 75. >> i'm still cooking with gas, but i'm not the man i was at 65 or 55. >> solman: even so, trachtenberg thinks traditional retirement at age 65 is too young. >> people live longer now and are healthier longer now. but i think having an age at which the institution and the individual could together decide whether the person ought to retire would be a useful thing. >> solman: trachtenberg says 70 would be a good age to do that. so why does he continue to work at 75? >> well, if we had the conversation, i'd push back. i'd say, no, im still working! >> everybody's situation is different. >> solman: george mason psychology professor lou buffardi is retiring this spring at age 70. ut he doesn't thk everyone should. >> there are many folks my age and older who are remaining at the university and are some of our very best people. >> solman: sure, says claire potter, but there's a catch. >> i think one of the things you get if you have an aging faculty is, there's a kind of break on innovation that is unnecessary. younger people who are going into academia are m
-- committed suicide. >> that's right, my very close friend of mine in college, steve schneider, similar people, we both grew up, he grew up in ohio, i indiana, both pitchers on the baseball team and we both studied math at harvard. so he was someone i grew close with in college. and sort of observed the degradation in his mental state and it ended with him taking his own life. about seven years ago now. and so yeah it was very difficult process to observe and it certainly built some deep seeded motivation in me to understand what was happening. >> rose: if you were doing all this over, would you go in a different direction? i mean would you have gone into some aspect of life sciences directlrather than coming the way that did you through mathematics and computer science and writing code? wince don't think so. you know, i feel like i studied some life sciences while in college. so i spent some time in courses on neuroscience and computational neuroscience and it seemed clear to me that many of the innovations were going to be happening in the development 6 novel sensors to generate more data ab
